Last night I was invited to a press preview dinner at The NICE GUY LA, which officially opens to the public today. Woohoo! This sexy new spot has a total modern 60’s vibe… I know that sounds like it wouldn’t make sense, but just trust me on it. It’s the newest spot from the H.Wood group, who also own Bootsy Bellows and Shore Bar to name a few. The NICE GUY, located on La Cienega in the center of West Hollywood, serves up fantastic food like pizza topped with figs, caramelized onions, gorgonzola and thyme. In addition to their killer food they have TONS of specialty cocktails and live music on most nights. It’s reservation only, even for the bar (which I love) so it won’t ever feel packed or too crowded. Enjoy the photos below and make a ressie ASAP for a ritzy night out.

After a recent selfie many of you asked about my makeup so I figured I would share my “Face of the day” and what I used to create it. Today’s look is all about summery golden bronze. I want my eyes to stand out so I used a bold copper shade on my lid followed by a pop of gold right in the center. I rimmed under my eyes with one of my all time favorite liners, Golden Bronze from Nyx, applied several coats of my fav mascara (Voluminous #duh) and kept everything else pretty neutral. All the products are below and you can purchase them straight from my site! Yippee! Happy Thursday kitties. Meow.

When I was in San Francisco a few weeks ago I got to visit the Bare Minerals headquarters (I share some of my trip on a recent vlog). In addition to my tour of the headquarters and getting my makeup done, I got gifted with a pretty awesome goodie bag. I wanted to share some of my favorite products with you guys. I hope you enjoy the haul!
Last weekend was BeautyCon. For those that don’t know BeautyCon is a beauty and style summit where influencers share their tips, secrets and stories about all things blogging, vlogging, makeup and fashion. It’s a great way to hear from and meet some of your favorite cyberlebrities. It’s fun to see how much it’s grown since last year too. I heard there were over 4,000 people at the LA Mart this year. So cray! Friday was the annual Platform pool party and Saturday was the big show. Hope you enjoy a snapshot of my weekend and my “get ready with me” video. THANK YOU to everyone that came up to me and said hi! Love my beautiful subscribers!
Happy Thursday! I’m excited to share the very first episode of Mommy & Me with you guys. Luckily for me I’m working with veteran mamas Colette Butler, who has 5 kids, and Kayli Butler who just had her third. They are a wealth of knowledge for this new mama! I hope you enjoy the cuteness overload and hearing our stories of motherhood.

A few weeks back Michael, Idris and I hopped in the car and headed up to the good’ol Bay Area. It was the baby’s first road trip and we had a blast. I will say that breast feeding on the side of the road off highway 5 in the sweltering heat is not my idea of fun, but luckily we only had to do it once during the 7ish hours it took to get up there. We got to spend two glorious weeks frolicking around the Bay from SF to Carmel and everywhere in between… and I gotta say, The Bay is BOOMING. Dang. One of the highlights of the trip included Idris meeting his Iranian great grandma. Enjoy the pics and video below!
As I mentioned, I grew up in the Bay Area, but every time I go back I try and squeeze in some new restaurants. On this last trip some of my favorite dining experiences include La Mar in SF for amazing ceviche and a killer view. I suggest going during the day so you can really soak in the scene. The Paragon Restaurant and Bar in The Claremont Hotel in Berkeley was awesome. They serve delish upscale California cuisine in a historic hotel with an amazing view of SF. Dametra Cafe in Carmel has the best dolma EVER and the owner always plays the guitar and sings for his customers. It’s so fun!
I’m so happy to announce that I will be starting my new show Mommy & Me next week. The best part- THE BABIES! Winston, Daxton and my own little nugget, Idris, will be staring along side us mommies. The upcoming series will cover everything from our must have products, to breastfeeding tips and everything in between. It’s fun, emotional and honest. (Umm I cry in the first episode! #HiImSensitive) The preview below is beyond adorable. Take a peek and be sure to tune in next week.
Wine tasting with a baby!?! Yeah I did it… twice actually. Before anyone starts to freak out, I’m just tasting some wine, I’m not getting wasted and feeding my son wine infested breast milk. I’m a responsible adult and I certainly don’t want some alcoholic baby. Now that we got that out of the way, back to the wineries. If you follow me on Instgram you may know that I’ve been up in the Bay Area (where I’m from) for the last week spending time with fam and friends, but I’m also trying to have a fun summer and do things that I did pre-baby, like wine tasting. My goal since Idris was born was to attempt to maintain a fun filled lux lyfe and just include him in most of my activities. Since being in the Bay and so close to Napa, I thought, why not try some places up here. I ventured to Domain Carneros, pictured below, which was absolutely stunning and felt like a chateau in France. I’m constantly testing what places work and don’t with Idris. What are some places you guys feel comfortable bringing your babies? Comment below and let me know. I love hearing from you beautiful mamas! Also, for the non-moms, does it piss you off when you see a baby at an unexpected place like a winery? Be honest!
P.S. Reese totally loves wine country and can’t wait until he’s of the legal age. Gotta Go!
